We had a big group this morning. Besides me, there were Michelle and Michelle and Ariane like usualy, but Michelle 1 brought her sister-in-law and Ariane brought her neighbor. Her neighbor had a baby 6 months ago and hasn't run since before her pregnancy, and so she was slow and took some walk breaks, which was just fine with me. I did get significantly faster on the third mile than I was on the first two. I guess it has always taken me two really slow miles before I could do anything else. It's just that really slow is much slower now than it used to be.

How is your running going with graduation and the end of school? Your second son graduated this year didn't he?

i hope the wild fires are staying away from your home! and your still able to run in spite of what must be smoky conditions out there.

Hi JD,

Thanks for your concern. The wild fires are well away from my home and we're not dealing with particularly smoky conditions where I am.

I suppose I could run if I wanted to. I've lost my running partner and thus my motivation because Michelle is too far along in her pregnancy to run. I think she's due in a week or two. I've just gotten too fat and lazy lately. And it is too dang hot here. Maybe I'll take up running again in a couple of months when it cools off a bit.

I'm glad to hear you are safe! I know Colorado Springs is a ways away, but it is good to hear it from you :)

Get back to running quickly...I miss you!

that's good news.

i hope you do get back to running soon - good luck with everything.
